INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE HANGERS, BEARINGS AND JOINTS INSTALLED ON SIEVE AND SAVENA RAILWAY VIADUCTS ON THE HIGH SPEED RAILWAY LINE BOLOGNA-FLORENCE


The site activity of FPC ITALIA re-start in complete safety, after the lockdown period, with the inspection and maintenance of the hangers, spherical bearings and joints installed on the Sieve and Savena railway viaducts that are located on the Bologna-Florence high-speed railway line.

This is a very important site lasting about 2 months, with both day and night activities, which has required, above all, important efforts in terms of personnel safety due to all the requirements provided by the protocols related to Covid-19.

The works on the hangers installed on the Savena viaduct has already been successfully performed. Here one of the most delicate activities of this contract took place during the night in the absence of rail traffic.

The spherical hinge was extracted to verify the aging of all the components.

A more specific check is performed at our ISOLAB testing laboratory where some tests on spherical hinge will be carried out. Of course, a new hinge was installed to load again the hangers.

The inspection also proceeds in parallel on the railway spherical bearings and expansion joints.

Once again FPC ITALIA is the reliable partner for works that require extreme professionalism and accuracy and all this with the maximum safety!
